Holmes would spend too much time showing off.

But Bond would get distracted by every nice pair of legs that walks by.

If it was Irene Adler walking by that one would be a draw

I'm not sure I entirely understand the debate. In a face-to-face combat situation, I woulc bet on Bond. If the two characters were going toe-to-toe to solve a mystery, my money would be on Holmes. They each have their strengths, Bonds being suave ass-kicking and Holmes being witty intellect.

I am not sure is we should count holmes out of a possible physical confrontation. He is often described as being a fairly skilled fighter, especially in the films staring robert downey jr.

Altough if it were a gun fight, my money would be on bond.

I don't mean to count Holmes out, but Bond makes a living kicking the shit out of professional thugs and trained killers. Holmes might be a skilled fighter, but he quite simply lacks the scope and experience Bonds life of combat has granted him.

And hell yeah if it were a gunfight my money would be on Bond. The opening sequence to a lot of the movies makes a point of showing Bond is incredibly quick on the draw.

I'm not so sure in the books Holmes always carried a revolver and a lot of the films he's armed so I think he could hold his own in hand to hand or using firearms.

Umm. I think you'll find Sherlock Holmes, never said "Elementary my dear Watson." Never said by him, people have made that up. So yeah, James Bond!

Bond never drank his Martinis shaken in the books he drank them stirred, like him often stirred never shaken

While "elementary my dear watson" may not be found in the book, Holmes often does explain his reasoning as "elementary", such as in "The Crooked Man". Further more, the phrase is publically attributed to Holmes, so the reference was clear and thus justified.

Of course James Bond! Holmes is just some pitty movie of a random adventure with barely any exciting scenes. At least James Bond has endless amount of suspense and thrills.

Ah, this is a tough one. Although, I have to give the win to Holmes; not only does he have far more physical training, he also has a FAR, fare superior intelligence to Bond's.

James Bond is a Mary Sue character, while Sherlock Holmes was a plot-provider.

I think the Mary Sue is less interesting, but that's just me.

A lot of this depends on which versions of the characters we're comparing but in a case of Wits and Espionage I think i'd have to give the edge to Holmes

Holmes. He'd know what James Bond would do to him if ever they have a fight.

1 year ago | Side: It's elementry, Holmes

Holmes is somewhat cleverer than Bondae

1 year ago | Side: It's elementry, Holmes

Given Holmes is much smarter than Bond, Holmes would win, remember play smarter, not harder.

Holmes makes a living outsmarting people more stupid than himself. Bond makes a living outsmarting criminal masterminds and other assorted people who are oftentimes much smarter than himself. Just saying I think Bond would be used to that particular disadvantage.

We also have to factor in that if Bond and Holmes ever went face to face, Bond would undoubtedly nail Holmes love interest and then use her as an inside-woman to bring Holmes down. And then she would probably tragically die, to free Bond up to nail a new chick in the next film.

Like I said earlier it all depends on which incarnation of each character are facing up to each other, if it was the literary or Robert Downey Jnr version of Holmes in a fist or gun fight with Bond they would be pretty evenly matched, if it was Bennedict Cumberpatch (or whatever his name is), or Johnny Lee Miller then my money would be on Bond

Not doubt Holmes does indeed outsmart people stupider than himself, but everyone is stupider than Holmes. Sure, Bond outsmarts criminal masterminds, but Holmes is not a criminal mastermind. It is two heroic titans.

In a hand to hand combat, Bond would win without a doubt as would he nail Holmes love interest, but as smart and witty Holmes is, he would easily deduce the espionage of the inside woman working for Bond. Remember, Holmes is the greatest detective, plus, Bond would never see a hand to hand combat because Holmes would just never show up. Holmes would always be two steps ahead of Bond.

Brains > brawn. This is partly because I am a smart weakling, but Sherlock is just cooler.

Also, all Sherlock Holmes media is, in general, better than James Bond. Sorry, but that's how it is in my mind.

Holmes was played by Robert Downey Jr. Your argument is invalid.

Holmes is far superior than Bond. Holmes has a higher IQ and doesn't try to sleep with every woman he sees. Plus Holmes was played by Robert downy jr. Your argument is invalid.

Holmes is undoubtedly smarter than smarter than Bond. Much like BamBam and delarson, I believe that Robert Downey Jr. is far superior to Daniel Craig.

I like both of them. But I will go to Sherlock Holmes. He is a REAL crime solver.
